Nonzi was introduced to viewers as a slay queen who wanted to make it in the entertainment industry. With the financial constraints she faced, she seduced Mlungisi while his wife was away in KwaZulu Natal Province. Nonzi tried to seduce Mlungisi with sweet words and sweet gestures, but the man was too preoccupied with his wife’s past infidelity, loneliness, job loss and job hunting. Nonzi stepped up her game and finally seduced Mlungisi with desirable revealing clothing, mind games and love potions from a traditional healer.
Mlu gave Nozi the boot, and just like that, she was out of the Scandal. As Mlungisi was a family man, she used that characteristic and faked a pregnancy to keep him close to her. All Mlungisi could think about was Nozi until his family helped him break the spell he was under.
Her sentiments on playing the role of Nonzi
Thandeka enjoyed playing this role, and it was something she hadn’t played before, a fun, vibrant, confident plus-sized woman who bodied her personality. Usually, she got a woman from the villages, the first wife in a polygamous marriage and other roles that stereotyped plus-sized women to specific boxes. Nonzi was a new character, and the role came when Thandeka was on a fitness journey in real life.
